Our Model

Many young women rescued from Sex Trafficking struggle to face the reality of what being free actually means.  How can she be hopeful about the future when she has no money to return home with; or her family sold her so it’s too dangerous to return home; or she fears the stigma that would be put on her if she does return home? Unfortunately, all too often, these young women head straight back into the situation from which they were rescued. The incidence of re-trafficking is alarming! Without a doubt we want to protect every woman that comes to us from experiencing again the horror of abuse and sexual exploitation.

We are a place where we have the privilege of being a part of their restoration and reintegration back into community. A safe space, equipping survivors with a fighting chance to achieve a high self-worth among others in society. We endeavour to develop upon their skills, education and value as a precious individual, to help them re-build their life outside of Offspring.

Our model is broken down in 3 parts to define how we intend to help the transition process, and ultimately, each young woman’s ‘walk to freedom’. Employment, Education and Empowerment are all crucial, and they all work together in our goal of seeing those that come through our door, leaving as a whole, happy, healthy and restored woman.

Employment…that gives them skills and a purpose – As a part of our model to equip, support and empower, survivors are taken on as paid trainees. Our aim is to provide various vocational skills and introduce them to a more formalised workplace that will ensure they are prepared for their transition into community life.

Education…that gives hope and understanding – Every day as the trainees come together, we want to not only expand their vocation skills but also their knowledge. So for one hour in the morning, time is set aside to for tailored education lessons to equip our trainees to take on the world. Numeracy, literacy and life skills that she will carry with her wherever life may take her!

“There are two educations. One should teach us how to make a living and the other how to live”
- John Adams

Empowerment…that gives them confidence and value as individuals – We want empowerment to be ingrained in all aspects of our model as it is an important pathway in developing our goals and vision for the young women in our care. We hope to see them live life to the fullest and be at the forefront of partaking in decision making which impacts their own lives.
